India levelled the 3-match T20I series against Bangladesh with a dominating win in the 2nd T20I at the SCA Stadium in Rajkot. Despite their first-ever T20I loss at the hands of Tigers in Delhi, India fielded the same playing eleven in the next game. Skipper Rohit Sharma produced a demolition over the Bangladesh attack after the bowlers did their job for the home team. The two sides will face off at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur on Sunday with the trophy up for the grabs.

All the key stats and numbers ahead of the series-decider in Nagpur between India and Bangladesh:

1 – Bangladesh has won only one multi-game T20I series since in the last seven years. They defeated the West Indies in a 3-match series last year by 2-1 margin. They defeated Pakistan in the one-off T20I in 2015 at home; the only other time when Bangladesh won any T20I series in these seven years.

5 – Rohit Sharma has five fifties in 10 innings in the T20I format against Bangladesh; the joint 2nd most fifty-plus T20I scores for any player against an opponent. Virat Kohli is on the top with six fifties from 15 T20I innings against Australia.

1-2 – India featured in three T20I matches at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur where they lost while chasing twice and won once while defending a target. The venue stood host for a total of 11 T20Is; the last one being in 2017. The team batting first won in 8 of them while the chasing side won only thrice.

11-2 – India’s win-loss record in the 3rd game of a bilateral series in the T20I format. India won all the ten times when they featured in the 3rd match of a T20I series until 2018. However, in 2019, they lost twice and won only once.

49 – Number of wickets Yuzvendra Chahal has taken in the T20I format across 33 matches. Chahal needs one more wicket to become the 3rd Indian to bag 50 wickets in Men’s T20I cricket. Chahal currently has 26 T20I wickets in India; the most by an Indian at home.

398 – Number of sixes Rohit has struck in all formats of international cricket. He needs two more sixes to become the first Indian and only the 3rd player to hit 400 international maximums. Chris Gayle (534) and Shahid Afridi (476) are the only players to have hit 400+ sixes in international cricket so far. Rohit is currently tied on 3rd position with Brendon McCullum.

922 – KL Rahul has scored 922 runs in the T20I format till date across 27 innings he has batted. Rahul needs to score 78 runs in the 3rd T20I to become the 3rd fastest to 1,000 T20I runs.

1,014 – Shreyas Iyer is the only Indian to have amassed 1,000 runs in the Twenty20 in 2019. Iyer batted in 30 T20 innings this year scoring 1.014 runs at an average of 40.56 with two hundreds and four fifties.

5,925 – Runs Shikhar Dhawan has aggregated in the Twenty20 format in India. Dhawan needs 75 more runs to become only the 4th player to score over 6,000 T20 runs in a country. Rohit joined this list during the 2nd T20I where he scored 85.
